Welcome to Mackenzie Davis Fan, your #1 source for info, news, and photos of extraordinarily talented Canadian actress Mackenzie Davis. She stars as Cameron Howe in AMC's Halt and Catch Fire and recently appeared in the "San Junipero" episode of Netflix's Black Mirror. Mackenzie just finished filming Blade Runner 2049 and Tully, and her newest film, Always Shine is on Video on Demand now!

It has been announced by Vulture that Mackenzie and Kerry Bishé have been given the same salary as their male co-stars on Halt and Catch Fire. This is quite the advancement for women in the entertainment industry, so we are extremely happy for them. It was more than deserved! Congrats, ladies!

Halt and Catch Fire begins its fourth and final season this fall with a fresh start: Mackenzie Davis and Kerry Bishé are getting paid the same amount as their male co-stars, Lee Pace and Scoot McNairy.

“Before this season, it was really important to me, just on a personal level of being like, I don’t need to get paid more than anybody; I just want to be paid the same,” Davis, who plays the coding genius Cameron Howe, told Vulture on the set of the show in Atlanta. “Kerry and I deserve to get paid the same as the boys.” Bishé, who plays Donna Emerson, a senior executive at a VC firm, added, “I do think that the principle is important, no matter the size of the numbers we’re talking about.”

Both Davis and Bishé said negotiating the salary with AMC ahead of the final season was simple and straightforward. “Without having to ask this final season or renegotiate our contracts, they paid the four of us the same, which I thought was really generous,” said Bishé. “It was a really nice commitment — literally putting their money where their mouth is.”
